Great feature in all, but the inability to post the same review in multiple communities causes needless competition among community founders

My 2 Cents, Communities on Lunch
I’m not going to lie, I’m a sucker for leadership positions. Which is why when I found out that Lunch was allowing their members to start and moderate their own communities, I was pretty excited. I’ve always wanted to have an online community/following of some sort, yet Facebook wasn’t really doing it for me. I have blogs, but it is so hard for my blog readers to really interact and tell their own opinions in the comment sections on my blog. Communities on Lunch completely …

I first arrived at Lunch in December 2008 after being sent an invite.  I stayed, left and came back in March of 2009.  I recall the first thing I thought in December being, "What's the point of this?"  And then as the website evolved I began to love Lunch.  It has become the equivalent of checking my email or my facebook page.  I come to the site everyday and mingle on the site everyday, observing other members and reading reviews.  I went on a trip in …

About this topic


Communities on Lunch is a place where Lunchers can create personalized review websites about their unique passions.  Community members can find and post reviews, topics, quick tips and lists on any particular topic related to the community.

The idea of a Community is to share content around a specific perspective that will shape the nature of the conversation.  The more niche the interest, the better for the members of that Community and also for everyone reading the reviews, lists, and quick tips.  Creating a dynamic where discussion and commentary with fellow enthusiasts is focused around a detailed subject brings both the participants and their contributions to a higher level. 

Communities on Lunch provide the ‘review’ context, a new format for connecting around shared interests online. This environment aims to draw out useful content around niche topics, encouraging more people to feel comfortable contributing quality content that can genuinely benefit others.

Communities on Lunch are curated by the Community Founder, who decides what gets reviewed (by setting which topics are in the Community), and sets the tone for how those topics get discussed.

All topics are organized at a global level on the main Lunch site; preventing great opinions and information from being lost in a disorganized message board thread, or trapped in an isolated social network or group. ...
